SRINAGAR: The Indian army says Pakistani troops have fired across their disputed frontier in the Himalayan region of Kashmir, killing three civilians.

Indian military spokesman Col. Brijesh Pandey said Pakistani forces fired mortars into the Uri sector in Indian-administered Kashmir on Tuesday.

Indian military spokesman Col. Brijesh Pandey said Pakistani forces fired mortars into the Uri sector on the Indian side of Kashmir.

A shell hit a house close to the military line dividing Kashmir between the countries, killing a man and two teenagers, including a girl, Pandey said.

There was no independent confirmation of the incident.

Indian troops did not retaliate and have accused Pakistan of violating a 2003 cease-fire accord. Though the cease-fire has been holding, there have been isolated shooting incidents. –AP

Sorry for that bad incident. We should also fix the steal border with Afghanistan. If we cover the border with steal border then we can save our future from terrorist Taliban.

It is pretty much the norm. American troops and North Korean troops fired at each other across the N/S demarcation line for decades.
